Army Ten-Miler

Captain Clevy Nelson-Royster participated in the Army Ten-Miler


She has always been very athletic and played on school basketball teams and traveling basketball teams.  At Tuskegee she joined the cross country team.  Her scores for physical fitness, alone with her academic accomplishments were what attracted the Army to Clevy.  When she learned about the Army Ten-Miler, running in this event was just a natural thing for her to do.
